Prince’s Crossing Condo – Eau Claire

Prince’s Crossing is one of Eau Claire’s more established high-rise condominium Buildings.  It still has an amazing amount of charm and finesse.     Built in 1981, Prince’s Crossing is very nearby the Peace Bridge.

Prince's Crossing Calgary

Prince’s Crossing condo was built in 1981.  It is located at 738 3rd Ave SW, Calgary, AB very near the Downtown Commercial Core,  the Eau Claire Retirement Residence and Catty-Corner from the Pavilions Condominium ComplexPrince’s Crossing was converted from apartments in 1993 in the highly regarded Eau Claire District.  Some of the suites have a partial river view and some of the units have a large terrace. There are also a number of smaller units.

Several businesses occupy the main floor of Prince’s Crossing.  Buchanan’s Restaurant, Tower Cleaners, a Mini Market, and Silk’s Hair Salon.  The Mini Market is accessible from the lobby, as is the Tiny Tykes Day Care on the 2nd Floor. Throughout the rest of the building there are an incredible array of floor plans comprising 210 living units on 17 floors including a number of incredible penthouse and sub-penthouse units.  There may be provisions only for washer/dryer combination units in-suite.

The lobby is spacious and manned 24/7.   I found the attendant to be unusually amicable.  Gordon has been there for 4 years and seemed to like his position there, and take great pride in carrying out his duties.  For this reason  I suspected him to be a unit-holder but I was wrong.  Unlike most condominiums, Prince’s Crossing apparently hires their security people privately and this seems to make a huge difference.  There are three Otis Elevators, very generous by today’s standards.   There is a refundable damage deposit of $100 to move in or out (Subject to change)

Prince’s Crossing Amenities

Prince’s Crossing has an Exercise Room with rubber floor on the second floor.  It is spacious and airy, with a big screen TV, and his/hers steam rooms and lockers. It has several pieces of workout equipment. The Prince’s Crossing Exercise Room may be utilized between the hours of 6 Am and 11 PM daily.

Prince’s Crossing Restrictions

Prince’s Crossing has a strict “No Dog” policy.  Kids and cats are okay though.

Prince’s Crossing Parking

There is no visitor parking within Prince’s Crossing. however there seems to be ample assigned parking stalls for unit holders on several levels underground. The entrance to the parkade is behind the building, between 3rd and 2nd Avenues. Maximum door height of the overhead door in the parkade is 6’4”.  There is short term pay-parking available in front of the building. (Free evenings & weekends)

In summary, my visits to Prince’s Crossing have left me with the feeling this building may be a good option for working professionals who want to buy a centrally located condominium at a reasonable price in a good area.  It seems to have a good demographic mix and pride of ownership is apparent.   If you are interested in relocating to or from Prince’s Crossing or elsewhere in Eau Claire, I would like to speak to you. Please give me a call and we’ll compare notes.
